First what year is it? If it is a 2000-2003 you will need to remove the dash pad itself to remove the cover for the radio. There are screws on both sides of the dash where the fuse panel is on the driver side and passenger side, also open the glove box there are two ontop in the front use a flash light to see them. Also the center air vent ontop of the dash has one or two that hold it on and maybe some underneth it. that should be most of them but check before you just rip it off. Next if you look across the top of the bezel (gauges and radio) there should be a few more. from there it should come right out. Then you should see what is left of the screws that hold in the radio…..
Any Cavalier that was made after and including 1995 requires you to remove the dash to get to the stereo. There's no way around this short of prying at your dash and hoping it flexes enough to get the stereo out - if you try this method, which I've seen people do before - you've got about a 1% chance of NOT breaking something.
Do it right, remove the dash. Pick up a Chiltons or Haynes manual for $20 and look at the instructions in there. $20 for a manual is way cheaper than a couple hundred bucks for a dash.
You will need a "Torx/Star" drill bit or driver to remover these screws...
(STEP1-)Open drivers door
(STEP2-)Use flathead screwdriver to pop-off panel where the fuse door is. (Pop the whole thing off...not just the fuse door)
(STEP3-)Unscrew the screw closest to the A/C vent
(STEP4-)On top of your dash, there are 2 or 3 screws with the Defrost vent...remove them and the vent
(STEP5-)Open passenger door
(STEP6-)Repeat step 2 (minus the fuse door)
(STEP7-)Repeat step 3
(STEP8-)Open glove compartment
(STEP9-)There are 2 or 3 screws on the top perimiter of the glove box...remove them
(STEP10-)Using a long screwdriver or nutdriver (not sure anymore), unscrew the two "brass-looking" screws INSIDE the glove box(on the roof of the glove box) they are right in the middle. DONT DROP THEM OR THEY WILL BE GONE FOREVER! (STEP11-)That does it for the top part...just start pulling it off (If you here snaps, its normal. Because it is also held in by clips)
(STEP12-)Unscrew the screws all along the top of the front dash trim
(STEP13-)Now start pulling the dash trim away from the dash
(STEP14-)While it is off, you will have to unsnap the dimmer control (from behind) and unplug the cig lighter (From the back. Also, the actual lighter stays in the dash trim)
ENJOY! and yes, you have to do steps 1 thru 11. if not, you will not be able to get to the screws holding on the front dash trim. It sounds tough. After you do it the first time, its no sweat.
